Lawmakers need to step in fast to fix this dangerous mistake.
10 days before Harvey made landfall and brought devastation to tens of thousands of Americans, President Trump issued a reckless executive order that affects all federal agencies and contractors involved in the rebuilding effort.
He rescinded the Federal Flood Risk Management Standard—an order President Obama issued in 2015—that aimed to improve America’s preparedness and resilience against flooding, and ensure that taxpayer dollars are used wisely.
Tell Congress: Enough is enough. Americans deserve to know that rebuilding is done well and is taking into account how climate change is exacerbating flood risks.
We can't wait: Restore flood risk management standards
